Our expertise


As well as our core business of executive search, we offer recruitment expertise in:

The recruitment and retention of senior women:

In advance of a global CEO led event in Paris, attended by senior management and women's networks from different countries, Sapphire worked closely with Societe Generale (SG) to design, plan and roll-out their women's networks' workshops to review the position of women in the organisation.

Workshops and events:

We have taken part in and organised events, discussion groups and workshops including:
  • A discussion on what keeps CEOs awake at night for 200+ women.
  • An ongoing series of senior women’s breakfasts hosted by FTSE 100 Chairmen in their boardrooms.

Promotion of returners to work:     

We advised Herbert Smith on the recruitment of returners to law. We also helped the Ernst & Young, JP Morgan and Goldman Sachs design and run events to encourage professionals to return to work after a career break.  We have partnered with the London Business School to host ‘Return to Work’ conferences.
